Event cooling ensures constant and pleasant temperatures
To ensure that only the excitement will rise – and not the temperature
The conference, congress and event business is booming. Nearly 2.9 million events were registered in the past years, the number of participants during this period of time was approx. 412 million. In the past 12 years, a total increase of slightly more than 40 % can be recorded! If you want to successfully generate further growth in this expanding market, you may not accept any compromises where air conditioning of tents and halls are concerned. Because only if the temperature's right the guests feel really comfortable and reward your event by giving positive evaluations on the Internet and social media. Negative evaluations, on the other hand, are hard to put right again later on.
Full service for your event air conditioning
Therefore, professional rented coolness like that offered by TKL is a key success factor in the event sector. Whether you're having a classy corporate party, a promotional marketing event, or at sports tournaments, trade fairs or town festivals – with mobile air conditioners from TROTEC and TKL you can respond to heat waves flexibly. On request, the TKL team takes over the complete air conditioning logistics for your project, from setting up the professional cooling units in the marquee or in the hall, including the connection and the dismantling later on. And, of course, all service and maintenance tasks that might be necessary in the event of longer lifetimes on site. With our large and directly available stock level we can offer you the suitable air conditioning solution for every room size in every performance class.
The backstage area also needs cooling
Hardly any of the guests visiting a large festival marquee or a event hall guess what's actually going on behind the scenes. Including the 'minor' dramas, for example when the catering team of a VIP event is struggling backstage to keep the buffet with its culinary delicacies cool and fresh in spite of the heat that keeps rising by the minute – and this while the guest of honour has not even entered the marquee. Or if the engineering team, tucked away in its separate room and at summerlike high temperatures, reports the first failures of heat-sensitive devices. Whether we're talking about the technical equipment, goods or staff members – all of them suffer from extreme temperatures in equal measure and sauna heat can have a substantial negative impact on the quality of your event.
Agreeable temperatures for a smooth event
Unforeseen complications by insufficient cooling or even a complete failure of the air conditioning can easily result in losses of revenue, additional costs or even compensation claims. This may annoyingly upset your overall calculation , and this is something that you can easily avoid. Because TROTEC and TKL also offer professional air conditioning systems and cooling solutions for the backstage area, that guarantee your event to proceed without any disturbances and enable the staff members to focus on their job for the good of the guests. This also applies for the areas that are often overlooked when implementing the climate planning, e.g. the tent entrance, cash zones, cloakroom and office rooms.
There for you in the case of emergency: mobile air conditioning, directly available
The question of additional mobile cooling capacity is a question raised again and again. The reasons for this are manifold – just think of the past hot summers: Temperatures are increasingly going haywire and are rising steeply. If additionally a considerably greater number of visitors than announced are now crowding into the marquee or the event hall, even serious planning with regard to the current cooling demand may become obsolete very quickly. Or, shortly before the start of the event, a service employee reports the defect of a mobile cooling unit and at the same time a waiting period for a replacement device of several days. Also in emergency cases like these, calling TKL may be your solution!
Quick availability of air conditioners on all performance levels
Because then the mobile cooling units of TKL are available to you as a supplement to your existing cooling solution – in order to cope with additional peaks is in the cooling demand, as a replacement for unscheduled service tasks that become necessary, and of course also in the event of an emergency. With rented cool air from TKL, the air conditioning of your event is always a sure thing. Throughout Europe with express delivery thanks to the 24-hours emergency service, on schedule, with reliable, certified forwarders and with all required technical support on-site for you.
Mobile air conditioning systems of the PT series for easy and quick deployment
The robust TROTEC cooling units of the PT series from European high-quality manufacturing have been specifically designed for the cooling of large rooms, halls and marquees. The high-performance and reliable cooling professionals convince by their easy and quick start-up in almost every location. Be it PT 4500 S, PT 6500 S, PT 6500 HT, PT 15000 S, PT 15000 HT or PT 23000 S – depending on the model, the professional air conditioners with their cooling capacity of 5.5 kW to 23 kW can put through an air volume of 550 m³ to a huge volume of 5,400 m³ per hour. In this way, even large rooms are cooled down to 10 degrees Celsius in a short time.
Connecting as quick as lightning thanks to water cooling circuit with quick release fastener
The air conditioning systems of the PT series come with two separate cooling circuits. The refrigerant circuit of the basic device is hermetically sealed. By contrast, another circuit is installed between cooling unit and external heat exchanger for cooling the condenser as well as for heat removal using a connection set. In this additional circuit only water with a low glycol concentration circulates as cooling medium, thus ruling out a loss of refrigerant when connecting or disconnecting the devices in a professional fashion.
For a quick installation of the water and power lines between air conditioner and heat exchanger the connection sets of these air conditioning systems come equipped with high-class quick-lock couplings. As a result, even longer connections over a distance of up to 30 metres can be realized without difficulty in a quick, clean and easy manner – ideal, for example, for control centres, storage, server and utility rooms, where there is hardly ever any room to accommodate such heat dissipation measures.
With their compact dimensions and the practical transport wheels the mobile air conditioners of the PT series fit through normal doors and lifts. TKL offers the right model for every specific application, as a variety of versions and performance classes of the PT series is provided to you – for purchase or for rental.
Higher versatility by Duplex Cooling option:
For all PT air conditioners, furthermore the possibility of using Duplex Cooling is provided. Instead of one heat exchanger, two heat exchangers are installed in series for each DualHex coupling on one connecting line in each case, i.e. the number of heat exchangers used is doubled.
Duplex Cooling allows for a Δt- increase of the upper working range limit value around 7 °C, which makes it possible to utilize the devices even at higher ambient temperatures, or ensures that they do not run under full load at lower temperatures.
Models for high-temperature environments up to +55 °C available
For warmer environments the standard models can not only be optionally enhanced via HEX upgrade or Duplex Cooling with ΔT +7 °C, with the PT 6500 HT and PT 15000 HT models, furthermore two special air conditioners are provided, which are specially designed for high-temperature environments up to +55 °C. In this way, PT air conditioners can even still be reliably used for cooling applications in environments so hot that other models wouldn't make it.
PlanoPT – the world's unique connection feedthrough underneath doors
The PlanoPT which is only exclusive available at TROTEC and TKL makes it possible to implement a quick and easy installation of the connection sets underneath doors between the inside unit and the outside unit of all PT air conditioning systems.
Then you can shut the door behind you – since, thanks to PlanoPT and owing to their especially flat centre part the connecting lines between the cooling unit and external heat exchanger of split air conditioning units can be practically installed underneath all common inside and outside doors. For this purpose, quick-lock couplings, plugs for the power line and condensate hose connection as well as earth connections on both sides of the PlanoPT are provided. The flow design of the watertight multi-chamber system has been optimized specifically for the flow rates of PT air conditioners and – despite the centre section's height of only 6 millimetres – it guarantees a smooth and uninterrupted pass-through without counter-pressure.
Closed doors are not an obstacle during the installation
Rely on engineering skill "made in Germany" patented by TROTEC – your company will benefit from this installation underneath doors in both energetic and safety-related respects. Since because PlanoPT does not affect the closing characteristics of doors, the outside doors of event rooms, for example, can remain closed. Therefore, also contact TKL where this subject is concerned.
Theatrical and ventilation from one single source
As an ideal supplement of the mobile air conditioners and for the extensive distribution of the cooled air, TKL and TROTEC also offer powerful fans and wind machines. Whether for direct ventilation or for the transport of air across long distances via hose – for the effective air exchange in stuffy rooms, halls or tents we can offer you efficient product solutions.
Theatrical ventilation? No problem!
Our product range also comprises powerful wind machines and fans for the theatrical ventilation on stages, at fun sport events or for film and TV productions. Contact us, we’ll provide you with the suitable solution for your idea!

What cooling capacity do your rooms require?
For rooms, offices or warehouses, you can use the following values to carry out a quick and approximate determination of your demand for the cooling capacity required:
- 30 watts per cubic metre
for ideal-typical rooms along the lines of passive house standard, normal sized window area and little frequented
- Additional 10 watts per cubic metre
in case of poor insulation
- Additional 10 watts per cubic metre
if there are more than 3 individuals in the room
- Additional 10 watts per cubic metre
if the size of the window area exceeds the average
- Additional 10 watts per cubic metre
if the windows and/or outer walls are facing south
- 50 watts per cubic metre
for attic rooms.
Especially in case of attic rooms in old buildings determining the required cooling capacity remains a difficult task due to the lack of knowledge regarding the roof's thermal insulation. Just to be on the safe side, take 60 watts per cubic metre as a basis, in the case of poorly insulated roofs and many skylights, still more.
- 55 watts per cubic metre
when using air conditioners in construction site trailers
- From 60 watts per cubic metre
for large rooms and halls
- 100 watts per cubic metre
Online capacity calculation
An individual cooling load calculation in addition to spatial specifications also requires taking into consideration the usage behaviour and further heat loads. Therefore, just make use of our online calculator for a more detailed calculation, which we're providing to you in the following.
